Goat isn’t something I get to eat all the time. While it’s such a common protein and getting more popular by the second, it’s still hard to come by in the States. For some people goat is much stronger and gamier than lamb, but for me, while not being a huge fan of lamb, I ADORE goat :]
And my obsession is all cuz of this girl, THE Girl & the Goat :] [but this was eaten BEFORE she had the restaurant hehe] Top chef winner Stephanie Izard
Slow Roasted Goat and Market Vegetable Slaw from the Green City Market Chef’s BBQ ’09
It was tender, flavorful and just made me oh so happy. I may not like their milk but their meat is DERRICIOUS <3
Next up?! One of the best goat dishes I’ve had made by The ORIGINAL Top Chef, Harold Dieterle
Massaman: Braised Goat from Kin Shop
Fried Shallots, Purple Yams, Mustard Greens & Toasted Coconut
It was goaty and delicious and literally melted in your mouth as soon as you put it in your mouth! Goat and curry is a sure thing! Always fantastic.
Goat/Pork sausage on a bed of couscous from Toro
As soon as we heard the specials… [there was also a goat stew that sounded promising] J jumped right at this. SOOO glad we got it, it was SOOO freaking good – SO juicy and HUGE and full of flavor. Nice and meaty and perfectly spiced. MMMMMMM… delicious pork also played a huge part offering a nice fatty flavor to an otherwise lean goat.
And then a little something different and while I thought it was a bit gamey it was freaking prosciutto. GOAT prosciutto.

I’m sorry I ate your mommy… she was derricious… you’re cute but old goats are fuggly and scare me anyways haha – I’m lucky to have tried such a wide variety of different kinds of goat dishes. I’ve also had great Jamaican goat :] – which I can’t seem to find the photos for, and a few more but these were the ones that really stood out!
